Australians are never at a loss when it comes to ideas for island holidays but travelers may want to venture off the beaten path and visit a place that has astounding natural wonders.
French-owned Reunion Island, located several hundred kilometers off the east coast of Madagascar, has a number of stunning sights. Recently the pitons, cirques and other natural formations on the island were named by the World Heritage Committee to the UNESCO World Heritage list.
According to the committee the island is full of natural beauty.
"Dominated by two towering volcanic peaks, massive walls and three cliff-rimmed cirques, the property includes a great variety of rugged terrain and impressive escarpments, forested gorges and basins creating a visually striking landscape," reads the UNESCO website.
In addition, the island is the natural habitat of many fascinating plants and animals, making it an excellent choice to be named to the World Heritage list.
